Dr. Tonya Jolley is the transition coordinator at Lincoln Public Schools. This is her 15th year in special education with the Lincoln Public School district. Tonya has been a resource teacher, assistant principal, principal, and now a district coordinator for the 18-21 transition program, Independence Academy. Working with paraprofessionals has been a real passion for my work for special education professionally and personally. Her mom was a paraprofessional for 30+ years. Besides her love for special education, she enjoys spending time with her family and her 6-year old son. Being creative, traveling, and being in a music video from time to time is always fun!
